Ear candling is used for many reasons and they are as varied as the folks who use it. The process has proven effective when it comes to alleviating things like ear aches, sinus infections/pressure, and sinusitis. There are those who say that candling has helped release blocked energy and relieving pressure points of tension. Still others consider it a soothing relaxing therapy.
How does it work? A hollow candle (made from muslin and coated with all natural bees wax) is placed into the ear canal and as the candle burns, the combination of heat and suction removes debris from the ear. This process is great for those with sinus pressure or excessive wax build-up.
